We were fortunate to be able to provide face-to-face summer instruction, and these students worked hard! Today our young learners received their new backpacks for completing Summer School! We are proud of the work and time they have invested in their education! Thank you, Strawn ISD Education Foundation, for purchasing these new backpacks for our students!
To get our students and our staff back in school, we must put our plan into action that will keep the kids learning, but give SISD time to safeguard our school from COVID as best we can. We have received items from the state that we will utilize this school year, and have more incoming, namely disposable masks, reusable masks, hand sanitizer, gloves, "No Contact" thermometers, and health and campus safety decals and signs. With the constantly changing situation and our Beginning of the School Year Plan coming next week, please continue to follow our Facebook page and website for the latest information.

We completely understand if you feel the need for your student to remain at home.
